#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

Rebecca Rice of South Pittsburg, TN

She caught the attention of the Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women judging panel with her simple introduction. “I do not have a unique or dramatic story. In fact, my story is all too typical.”

Rice, a factory worker for ten years, found motivation to change her circumstances when she went through a divorce and heard that the plant she worked for might close. She chose a nursing career and earned a 4.0 grade point average in her first year of studies.

“When I graduate in spring of 2008 and pass those board exams, I will be in glory!” Rice said. “Doing something meaningful and fulfilling while being self-sufficient and providing security for my family seems hard to beat.”
